PAMl'NKIKS AND CKOATASiS
A sncci.il Richmond telegram in the Hal
timore Sun is very interesting in its sug
gestive reference to the remnant ot tlic
numerous Indian tribes that once
dwelt in the James Kiver county of Vir
ginia, and so long and ably contended
against the intruding white man. t an
the tribes, the mere mention of which
brings up to memory the mighty King
Powhatan, the valiant Captain John
Smith and the tender Pocahontas, only a
few of the Pamunkics, settled on a reserv
ation on the river of the same name, and
living alxiut twenty-five miles cast ol
Richmond, remain. In comparison with
the Cherokees remaining in North Caro
lina, these Pamunkics remain more true
to nboriirinal instincts and habits, despis
ing labor, which they leave to the wo
men, and spending their time in hunting
The article referred to sjieaks of the
modification of complexion among these
Indians, which is ascribed to a strain of
wiiite blood. The red or copper color has
given place to a yellowish tinge. 1 lie
same rhnnire is visible in our Cherokees.
Among them admixture of other blood is
rare. We are inclined to think that the
change is brought about largely by the
habits of a semi-civilized eoplc, abandon
ing open air life, and living in houses after
the manner of the whites, thus inducing a
partial bleaching proeess. The Pamun
kics are said to forbid any social contact
with the negroes about them. This is
the case, with very rare exceptions, with
the remnant Indian tribes in this
State. A knowledge of this fact
was brought to knowledge curiously
a few vears Ago, that knowl
edge bringiug about possibly very im
portant historical developments. For a
great many years, long antedating the
American revolution, a portion oi tne
county of Robeson, in this State, has
beeen inhabited by a dark skinned people,
whr. in time of slavery, were known un
der the general name of free negroes, or
tree mulatos, enjoying tne ngnt ol suf
frage up to the year 1835 ; deprived of it
when the amended constitution denied
that nriviWe to mixed or servile blood.
They were accepted without question as
.mongrels, inu.an, negro, wu.te, i-ortu-cmrar.nr
whatever combination funcv.
credulity or prejudice might create. The
terrible character ascribed to Henry
Bcjry Lowry, one of this people, was as
sumed, to be the outgrowth of these
mingled ingredients. It was only when
they, lander the name of Croatans, applied
to the legislature four or five years ago
for schools separate from the negroes,
that light was thrown upon their history
and characteristics, Mr. Hamilton Mc
Millan, then a member of the legislature,
had interested himself in investigation,
led to it largely by the antagonism be
tween these presumed "free mulattos"
and the negro. The result of his research
seem to establish the fact that while of
mixed blood, it was not negro blood that
was an ingredient ; that it wasa mixture
of Indian and white blood; and more
startling development of all, that the
white element was drawn from the lost
ilonv of Cnpt. John White planted on
Roanoke Island about l'.NK, and Un
friendly Croatan lmliansof the mainland
to whom the starving whiles had fled for
succor, had been kindly welcomed and
cured for, had joined fortunes, had inter
married, the Indians adopting the faith,
language and habits of the Ivnglish, and,
in the course of time, migrating fnithcr
south, moving into Robeson county
about the year 17.".
Our attention was directed to the sub
ject by the trait referred to in the mention
of the Pamunkics, possessed in common
by the Croatans repugnance to negro
intermixture. In his account of I he
Croatans, Mr. McMillan lias proved
enough, we t!:i::!;. to have presented to
intelligent iiupiiry one of the most valua
ble, but as yet, one of the most obscure,
pages of American history.
The miscrnhlv uncertain condition ol
continental liurope. neither at peace nor
at war, unable to enjoy the one because
kept in constant preparation for the
other, is a biting satire upon the boasted
intelligence of the age. The time seemed
to have come when the people had earned
sonic recognition of their own destinies.
In fact, llicv are as much at the mcrcv of
.. bullying Hisinnrek and a half crazy
Czar as when the lord of the castle could
Munition by a blast of hisbiiglehis peace
lid but submissive peasants from their
ploughs, and force tlicin into the field to
avenge some fancied insult or to fill u
his needy cullers. The learned, the intel
lectual, the ingenious, the industrious
Prussian has no more thought of diso
liedicncc to the will of Itisiuarck than the
besotted peasant of a past era had ol
disobedience to the ciMinuaiiils of Ins leu
dnl lords; ami the Russians fall into line
it l he summons of the Czar with the
blind nLcrily that characterized theii
Tartar ancestry when llu-y went out on
.1 career of universal ravage. It now
seems that peace between the ('.crnian
empire and Russia is ncillu-i -possible nor
desirable to tbein. lint the rupture be
tween llietn will involve all l-!urope.
Miserable Ivurope! Happy America if
uir mischievous seetionalisis will let it

Mr. Henry firmly says lie has within
the past two months made addresses in
twelve dill'erent tow ns to crowds perhaps
aggregating ."io.iMMi people. He makes
the following gratifying statement, hon
orable to the people, and most encour
agiur to the cause of temperance, which,
by its quiet moral agencies, is elVccling
what the bnisiuc, ollensive. intolerant
prohibition policy will never bring to
pass. I le says :
Hut in all the crowds there were not a
dozen drunken men. There was simply
a hospitable and happy people coining
together lor a day ol social intercourse.
No trace of stilleniiess or discontent.
Not a hint of disorder. Kvcry where
smiling faces, warm hearts, open-handed
welcome! No man can go touring
among such people without coining back
prouder than ever of old ficoria, and
happier than ever that he is numbered in
the ranks of' her sons!

same. I have for some time past been

much relieved of the Rheumatism.
